How to join WhatsApp group video calls already started

WhatsApp is the preferred messaging application for millions of users in the world and has several functions that many may not be aware of, such as Join WhatsApp group video calls even if they have already started.

Gradually the Meta platform has added new options. Text messaging evolved into voice calls, then one-on-one video calls, voice messages, then group calls, and more recently join initiated video calls.

This option helps those who couldn’t answer the call because they were busy or distracted when they don’t want to miss the group chat. You can join a “missed call” in the following ways:

As a bonus, make sure everyone has a good Internet connection when making or receiving group calls. The quality of the call will depend on the weakest Internet connection between the participants.

You will also not be able to delete a contact during the group call. In order to leave, the contact must hang up the call from their phone.

It is possible to participate in a group call with a blocked contact if someone else adds it, but you cannot add a contact that you have blocked yourself or one that has blocked you. You can ignore the call if you don’t want to connect with a blocked contact.

It should also be noted that it is not possible to make calls to emergency service numbers through WhatsApp (such as 911 in the United States and Mexico). To make such calls, you will need to use another medium.

How to make a group call

In case there are some clueless people who always answer but never call, they should know that the steps to follow to start a group call are the following:

Open the group chat with the people you want to call.

– If the group chat has 33 participants or more, the group call icon must be touched.
